I am a lifelong learner and also search for opportunities to hone my skills and deepen my knowledge. I have participated in hundreds of hours on professional and academic training through institutions in Brazil, the U.S., and Slovakia. These courses have spanned from theoretical and applied linguistics, as well as language education, instructional design, decolonial studies, and technologies.

I believe breadth is just as important as depth, and that the more interests you have, the more interesting you are. For this reason, I have sought opportunities to learn from fields far from mine, including music and physics!
